Looking better than ever!
Splash! The Rum Runner is back in the water. And looking better than ever! We have new bottom paint, the hull has been waxed, the plumbing re-done, and we completed just about everything on our to-do list (not the entire list, but good enough). We got new cockpit cushions (our old ones were stained and falling apart) and even a new grill (which was necessary after 4 years of heavy use- we grill every chance we get). So we are decked out and ready for another cruising season.
Best of all, we installed new underwater lights and they are awesome! They are so much brighter than the last ones and attract thousands of fish. It is like having our own aquarium at night- love it! The first night we turned them on we had a 4 foot long nurse shark circling around the boat for hours- so cool! But our favorite was all the sting rays and eagle rays in the Tobago Cays, which graceful fly thru the water at night. We stayed up late at night, drinking our wine, and watching the sealife. It provided hours of entertainment. Be sure to check out the video.
It is so
Sure is good to be back out on the water.
good to be back in the water and travelling around again. Hurricane season is just ending so you know what that means... time to set sail. We spent a couple of days in Grenada saying good-bye to all of our friends there before we left. And then we were off to the Grenadines, one of the most beautiful places on earth! We plan on cruising around here for the next month before heading north.
